Gifts of the Spirit – WAR

Pennsylvania author

Lynda McKinney Lambert

insight into her next full-length book –

Gifts of the Spirit: Stories & Poems

 You can watch a new book developing.

 

 

Yesterday, I wrote  my article “Gifts of the Spirit – HOPE .”

Read it here

I discussed my  current writing project.

I am working on my next full-length book,  Gifts of the Spirit: Stories & Poems from now till the end of 2021.

The new book is a companion of my book Walking by Inner Vision: Stories & Poems, published in 2017. See it here.

~ My Writing Process ~

I began writing  stories and poems for the new book a couple of years ago.

I always like to start with a plan that gives an order in which to work out the process. I laid out a skeleton or structure for it several times over the past couple of years. I gathered lots of ideas, writings. I divided the book into categories or topics – several times. I try to put everything into a cohesive whole, bring order to the myriad of concepts.

 

Each new version of my draft eventually is altered.

But, not all of it is erased, discarded or moved. No, it is more like a palimpsest manuscript. Layers of words remain as other coatings vanish. Spaces appear, created, holes filled. When one works in layers, some fragments remain, some punctuation altered or deleted, meanings changed, paragraphs removed, and some words, sentences or paragraphs are shifted to new locations. I use the Socratic method as I continually ask questions in the working process. I search under, around, and through the rugged terrain of my verbal landscape.

 

Over my years of writing, I’ve come to an understanding of how I work. I have a process, and it’s messy!

It’s war.

I am going to war, and I know it before I write that first sentence.

 

I step into chaos. I always begin with the disorder in just about everything I do in my creative life.

Nothing magically happens when I am creating – no magic bullets and no writings that plop down on my pages. Writing, for me, is more like an excavation site. I have to dig through layers upon layers to sort, sift, discard, build, destroy, explore, and patch.

 

My process is physical, a painful boxing match. I am a warrior woman going into battle.

Gifts of the Spirit – HOPE

Supporters and Friends

Your  encouraging messages give me the GIFT of HOPE.

I’ve become familiar with the way God whispers gently to us to give us His divine guidance and ideas for the direction he wants us to go?

I feel this tender nudge from God that at times. It is usually about

something that is common sense. I often think, “Why didn’t I think of this?

Yes, it makes sense, and it’s an

excellent idea.”

 

Gifts of the Spirit is the new full-length book I started writing this year.

I plan to complete the manuscript draft by the end of December 2021.

 

About this blog –

Gifts of the Spirit.

I’ll share some new poems, reflections, thoughtful, personal essays, and non-fiction stories on this blog for the next fourteen months. You might be reading the drafts of those writings that will finally become a collection in the book, Gifts of the Spirit: Poems & Stories.

I received a personal note from my friend Lynda J.

It arrived in a moment when  I was thinking about writing this post. She references the Dallas Holm song, “I Have Hope.”  God sends us such gentle reminders from unexpected sources at the precise time we need them. God is always right on time.

 

During 2020, a year of pandemic fears and anxieties, I can truly say, “I have hope.”

Here is what my colleague and friend sent to me today:

 

Lynda,

what a powerful testimony the Lord has led you to share.

I couldn’t agree with you more if I’d written a statement myself!!

 

One of your sentences reminded me of the chorus of one of my favorite Dallas Holm songs:

 

I have joy in the time of sorrow,

I have peace in the raging storm.

I have faith that Jesus holds tomorrow,

I have hope, I’m resting in His arms.

*

At the beginning of 2020, I chose One Word for my entire year – GIFTS.

I started choosing One Word for my year in 2015.

I wanted to think more seriously about giving GIFTS and receiving GIFTS. Because I am a Christian, I decided to do everything this year as a Gift for my King, Jesus! In my writing, artmaking, and everyday life at home, I kept this in mind.

This entire year is a journey of surprises for all of us, isn’t it?

 

Of course, I had no idea how that Word would reveal new meaning as the months come and go.

 

None of us could have anticipated the arrival of a pandemic and how we would experience life this year. We still have no idea what to expect, but we live in the eternal hope – our lives are in God’s hands, and he will take care of us no matter what the circumstances may be at any time.

 

Looking at history, we know that events such as this pandemic are not exceptional. People of all ages have faced tremendous changes and fears that come with those unexpected events. I know that for Christians, we are never alone in any circumstances that we face. Our faith is built on the solid foundation of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

I placed my life in His capable hands, and I find peace in times of storms or painful circumstances, and I find joy in times of sunshine and prosperity.

We have the gifts that the Father gives us in all seasons and in all cases. In fact, here is just one example of what God’s intentions are for His beloved children.

 

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

 

During the first week of October, I received some beautiful gifts, and I am sharing the news with you in this message.

 

I am delighted that Marcia Meara, author of the blog _The Write Stuff_ published a Special Feature about my writing and award-winning fiber art.

Read it here.

Second, I won a First Place Award for my talisman, “My Eyes are Only  for You,” at the InSights20 exhibition in Louisville, KY. The show opened on October 7, and you are invited to attend the virtual opening, which is available now.

Note: This year, first place is a shared award – which is lovely for the other artist and me.

 

The video is live now. You can see a photo of the artwork, the artist who made it, and a description. Rob Guillen is the coordinator of this annual exhibition. He will lead you through the winning pieces via the video. This juried art exhibition is presented by the American Printing House for the Blind. All artists in the show have a visual impairment. I am deeply honored to be a part of this project – my fifth time to have my work accepted in the Crafts Division by the jury – and my fifth award.

 

Here is the link to see the winners of the Craft Division – See it here!

Third, my poem, “The Talisman,” inspired by the process of making the talisman in the APH InSights 20 show, is in the October Issue of Newsreel.

If you subscribe to this audio magazine, you will hear me reading the poem.

“A Talisman”

by Lynda McKinney Lambert

Visualize a talisman-

precious stones and crystals

woven in bold patterns

plenty of Japanese glass seed beads

tiny drops of perfect symmetry.

I select flawless beads

stab them onto steel needles

hundreds of stitches.

thrust them one at a time

upwards into the heavens

endlessly.

I plunge my thin needle

deep through layers of stiff cloth

make my stitches sure

hold tight.

I’m a warrior woman

thumping my spirit-drum

made of dappled starlight.

I measure timeless days

counting beads in

a mystical circle

held together

with a bronze toggle clasp.

A Talisman brings

protection from evil

healing for weary spirits

nourishment for aching bodies

courage for new directions

on a pilgrimage

over treacherous pathways

guides my dimmed eyes

and nervous steps.

Black onyx ovals

are like a vintage fan

unfurled with a flourish

or a sacred victory flag

prepared to cast an invocation.

My fingers stroke cold stones

glossy-smooth, polished, faceted.

Gifts for a King.

Reflection and Comments -July 28, 2019

 

 

 

 

#1 – REVISE & UPDATE my Amazon Author Page – Do this FIRST.

July 28, 2019: Done

Click here to see Lynda’s Author Page at Amazon.

 

 

#2 – Update – Revise – New Title- Publish Concerti: Psalms for the Pilgrimage

July 28, 2019: This will be for 2020 year. I have started to make the outline for this revision. I will have to get out all my journals from the years I traveled and sift through them for additional information and material. Begin this in January 2020.

 

 

#3_Publish Star Signs: New and Selected Poems, 60 poems.

July 28, 2019: Book was published July 15, 2019.

Click here to see Lynda’s books and reviews

 

#4- Get Chapbook, first snow, published –16 poems.

July 28, 2019: Chapbook will be published by Finishing Line Press, January 2020.

As it turned out, this chapbook was chosen by another publisher as well. I had to decline that second one.

 

#5 – Write Miss Opal – A Memoir – A Cat’s Eye View,

I have started working on the Introduction for it and will try to work on it every week at least one day from now on.

Miss Opal will tell her story of being born in the mountains of southern Ohio – her rescue – and her new life living with the famous artist, Miss Opal Waters of the Opal Waters School of Design” and her new family in western PA. I have a cast of characters ready to begin the telling of Miss Opals life story. I had this idea to write this story in 2012 – and it has been brewing ever since –

July 28, 2019: This is on the back burner for possible future project – beyond 2020.

Miss Opal at work as Lynda’s Literary Assistant in the office.

She also has a Sister Cat Miss Bessie Smith who patrols the house during the nights.

Both sisters share their lives with Lynda, Bob, and the 2 dogs:  Miss Dixie Tulip and Miss Mitchell.

 

#6 – Write my MEMOIR– Under the Blueberry Moon – in my 70s.

I  have written so many artcles that could easily be worked into a memoir, and have tons of photos I can sift through for this project.

Below: Bob Lambert snapped this photo of me  from the back when she had her hair dyed purple in the spring of 2019. It was one of those “just for fun” moments of life.

 

July 28, 2019. I completed an outline of the periods in my life, from birth, into my mid-70s. I will use this outline and begin to drop in material in 2020. I am thinking this could be a completed project by the end of 2020.

 

#7 – Continue writing my “Saturday is for Sharing” series; “Thursday Treasures Series” and “Tuesday Travels Series” for SCAN.

July 28, 2019. I find that I am not motivated to write things according to a long term pre-planned agenda and pre-planned  topics. I’ve discontinued doing the regular pieces, because I get weary and disinterested with being on a schedule like this. Life is just too complex for me to narrow it down to weekly postings in different categories. I am just too random for this kind of plan. It works fine for others, but not for me. The artist inside of me has to be able to pivot and change direction on a dime. I am erasing this expectation right now. It is not in my wheel house!

Friday Favs – SNAKE PLANT

Post #168

Friday, 8 February 2019

Friday Favs

SNAKE PLANT

Have you ever said –

“Nothing grows for me – I’m no gardener.

I kill everything!”

Before you write yourself off as a failure at growing plants or flowers –

consider buying a SNAKE PLANT.

You might find this an easy plant to take care of and you might even find some flowers blooming on your SNAKE PLANT one day.

You will be doing a “happy dance” all around the room!

Give  SNAKE PLANT a chance.

According to an article in the Old Farmer’s Almanac Newsletter on  February 6, 2019,

“A Snake Plant” is  also known as “Mother-in-Law’s Tongue.”  That was a surprise to me.

In the 1980s,  I attended an auction at the home of a neighbor.  When the auctioneer held up a pitiful looking Snake Plant, I was the only bidder on it.  Obviously, it had ben sadly neglected for a long time. The long leaves of the plant were withered and  discolored – it did not look promising. But, I came home with that plant and began to take good care of it. The plant  responded to the light watering I gave it and it was not long before my Snake Plant began to send up tender shoots of new plants. Better yet, it started to bloom! That is a thrill when your succulent blooms.

The Snake Plant in my home today, is the same one I bought over thirty years ago at that auction sale on a summer day.

Each year, I bring my prized Snake Plant  indoors for winter, and it spends about 6 months of the year outside on my wraparound porch.

I make sure it is shielded from rain  because it does not like to be wet. And,

On my porch, it  gets a few hours of sunshine every day. It is on the south/west side of the porch. My Snake Plant rewards me with  lots of little white  flowers blooming on long stems, nearly  every year. I would say this is a plant that keeps on giving – for a lifetime. I expect one day this plant will be handed down in the family for another generation to enjoy. I’ve given starts off of it to family members over the years, too.

For additional information on growing Snakeplant and other succulents, please visit the Old Farmer’s Almanac.  You can read much more about how to care for your own Snake Plant.

I’d love to hear from YOU –

Do you have a Snake Plant?

I hope I have encouraged you to give SNAKE PLANT  a try.  Refer to the great article in the Old Farmers Almanac Newsletter for everything you need to know about this and many other plants you can grow in your home.

Thank you for visiting  SCAN-a-BLOG today!

I appreciate your visits and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Leave me a comment or a question. I always respond to them.

Thursday  Treasures #1

My FPersonal avorites

 In Which I  Discover a TREASURE.  

#1 in my Series: Thursday Treasures

 

  Let me ask you:

Do you want to make changes in your life?

  • Are you becoming aware that some individuals or a groups you may be around  no longer serve you in a positive and life-affirming way?
  • Do your encounters with them leave you feeling encouraged appreciated?           Or is it the opposite?

Do your friends or close associates  spur your to:

  • do your finest work?
  • think your highest thoughts?
  • grow  beyond your wildest dreams?
  • flourish and blossom?

Have you outgrown your flowerpot? Click here!

YOU are a TREASURE.

Be the person God created you to be.   Shine!

You already know

what you need to do.

 

DSC08504.jpg

 

I bought a few new flowerpots recently.

Some of my succulent plants were too crowded into  old pots.

They will grow much nicer now that they are in the beautiful new green flowerpots!

Dig yourself up out of that old flower-pot

that no longer holds your expanding roots,

Transplant yourself into a beautiful, large, new flowerpot

that will provide ample room and opportunities for

your exciting new growth.

 

Tuesday’s Treasure:

Spring is here and NOW  is your time to FLOURISH.

Untangle yourself from the grasping weeds that are trying to choke you!

Let me know how this works for you!

Gentle Zephyr

Gentle Zephyr is an Abecedarian Poem.

Each new lines is a letter of the alphabet. Look down the LEFT side of the poem and you will see the first line begins with “A” and the final line ends with “Z.”

*****

 

Gentle Zephyr

 

Angel of the Lord

by night you

called me without warning.

“Do not be afraid,” you said.

Even so, I shuddered

fearful and ashamed as you

granted me a message

“Holy, holy, holy,” you sang.

I heard you that lonely night

“Just as I am?”  I AM. “Let me

keep this night forever

locked in my memory,” I thought.

Miraculous, our Messiah has arrived. We are

night watchers near the City of David

only Jehovah saw value in us.  

Patiently, we kept waiting

quietly, the angel came; a brilliant star

revealed the message to

shepherds! The sheep barely stirred,

Tonight, the sky was falling, spinning,

until the Angel spoke. Divine

visitations are unexpected. I’ve been

waiting for the One called

X is for the newborn Christ. Oh, come, Emmanuel.

YHWH.  El Shaddi. Come quickly, gentle

Zephyr.
